My children had a great time learning to surf at this school. The school is located on the beach and there are good changing facilities. Plenty of helpful staff at the booking desk and two instructors for the group meant everyone got the help/ guidance they needed. We were very pleased to see the participants carried out fun warm up... More

My boyfriend and I stayed the night at Ayr Holiday Park not far from this beach so decided it would be a perfect opportunity to go bodyboarding whilst staying. We hired both the bodyboard and the wetsuit for only £12 each for 2 hours which was plenty for us as it was quite cold when we went. The guy that... More

I haven't much more to add than previous reviewers but our 12 & 14 year old had 3 sessions each for £75 all in. The cost covers the kit, tuition and 2 1/2 hours in total. Both were standing on their boards by the end of session 1, the youngest even managing a headstand! I have never met such a... More

My 3 kids were amongst 17, ranging in age from about 7 to 12, who signed up for a 2 hour lesson. The instructors were brilliant- fun, patient, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. I couldn't recommend them more highly. The kids loved it too!

I'm in my 30's and don't have kids but I had a great time with the St Ives Surf School. My sister and I did the 2 hour surf lesson, which was pitched at our level and great fun, and knackering! We had signed up for the Sea Kayaking but got a call from Harris to say conditions weren't good... More

I had one 2 hour group lesson at £30 at the end of my holiday. Wished I'd signed up earlier for the three lesson deal at £75. It was a cold day but the waves were moderate and the instruction was excellent. Wet suit and shoes provided within the price. Basic changing rooms simple shower facilities and could have done...

I had 5 consecutive lessons at St Ives Surf School around mid-April, and I would suggest 5 lessons as it is quite worth the money at £20 per lesson overall (breakdown for each 2 hour session is 30, 30, 15, 20, free). Water was cold but the equipment hired was really good. The surf conditions weren't the best and I... More
